I imported my galvo settings from the ezcad2 markcfg7 file with success, and the laser works (Raycus 30W q-switched). One setting that did not get successfully imported yet was DOORINPORT=15. I have a diy door interlock switch wired to input 15, and I would like to configure Lightburn to respect that interlock and not fire the laser unless input 15 is green. Searching device settings, I cannot find anywhere to enable this. I can see the red and green indicator working correctly in device settings.
In a youtube video, I saw that Lightburn 0.9.24 had “enable door open protect” as an option under machine settings, but I can’t find such a menu in the new lightburn.
I can confirm that this feature is coming for Galvo, and that it is in internal testing but I cannot give a time line as of yet.
The feature you saw is in our DSP/Gcode protocol but needed an entirely new implementation for Galvo and will likely be in the 1.3 release.
I’m looking to migrate away from EzCad2 on our fiber laser, and was impressed by LightBurn (running the trial)… unfortunately since the laser is used in a shared lab space, the lack of interlock switch support is a deal breaker (we specifically bought the enclosed model with the interlock on the door so management would support the purchase).
Anyway, I just dropped in to post that @REACH_LAB isn’t alone in looking for this feature. I’m glad to hear a solution is in progress, but do you have any idea of timeline for the 1.3 release?
Sorry we don’t have a time line for 1.3 other than “Soon”. I understand the desire for this. We have a few other features in development waiting for 1.3 so it will be a while still.
Just come to enable this important safety feature myself. Glad to hear it’s in the pipeline for 1.3. Thanks for looking to include it “soon”
